SEOUL, South Korea (AP) Lara Arruabarrena of Spain beat Monica Niculescu of Romania 6-0, 2-6, 6-0 on Sunday to win the Korea Open and claim her second WTA singles title.

After racing through the opening set, Arruabarrena double faulted twice to surrender her serve in the fourth game of the second and Niculescu seized the opportunity to level the match.

Arruabarrena broke with a superb lob early in the third set and the match swung decisively in her favor.

Niculescu saved one match point but it was delaying the inevitable and Arruabarrena wrapped up the victory, adding to her win on clay in Bogota four years ago.
